Gault Millau garden party 2019 Resort Bad Ragaz
One of the most prestigious parties where 17 of the best chefs from Switzerland show their skills. Hosted by Gault Millau in one of the most beautiful resorts: Grand resort Bad Ragaz. The weather could not be any better, lots of sunshine and clear blue skies, that is all what we have asked for. A fairytale setting in the beautiful park and around the pool of Grand Resort Bad Ragaz.
The Gault Millau rating system works with a scale of 1 to 20, with 20 being the highest. Restaurants given below 10 points are rarely listed. The points are awarded based on the quality of the food, with comments about service, price or the atmosphere of the restaurant given separately. Based on this rating, high-ranking restaurants may display one to four toques. Gault Millau does not accept payment for listing restaurants.
A big task to ask of the 17 best chefs of Switzerland, prepare a dish for all of the 450 guests on the spot.
